So many shows, so little time! Fortunately, Birdie makes it easy to decide your next binge through the power of personal recommendations. If you’re wondering what we’ve been streaming this past month, look no further. We’ve summed up birdie team binge recommendations for September.
If you haven’t heard the hype about Ted Lasso — you’re missing out. This show scored a total of 20 Emmy nominations, and is worth the binge watch. Jason Sudeikis leads this stellar cast, in the feel-good comedy of the year. As the aggressively optimistic small-town American football coach, shifts gears to the big leagues — a professional soccer team in England. This heartwarming series is a wonderful blend of British and American comedy.
Available on AppleTV

Calling all Jason Momoa fans! (And let’s be honest, who isn’t a fan of Aquaman). If you want to see this lovable hero in a fast-paced action movie, then head to Netflix stat. This revenge-thriller follows Cooper as he avenges his wife’s death, while trying to protect his daughter along the way.
Available on Netflix
If you like Sweet Girl, don’t forget to watch Taken
Kevin Can F* Himself
This series takes dark comedy to a whole new level, as Annie Murphy plays out alternate endings to the stereotypical sitcom plot. The Shitt’s Creek actress stars as Allison, a housewife married to Kevin — a man-child who is clearly punching above his weight class. But aside the comedy schticks, audiences get a glimpse into Allison’s inner world. The cinematography shifts between the light, multi-camera sitcom style to darker, indie film-like scenes. This creates a visual shift in tone that supports the abrupt shifts in storytelling.
Available on AMC and Amazon Prime
If you like Kevin Can F Himself, your next binge is Succession
Rick and Morty
This animated fan-favorite, premiered in 2013 — and is still bringing the laughs! Follow the mad scientist who takes his grandson on wild (and exceedingly dangerous) adventures across the universe. If you like a solid sociopath protagonist / shy sidekick duo, then Rick and Morty is your go-to binge watch this September.
Available on HBO and Hulu.
If you like Rick and Morty, then take a look at Back to the Future or Bojack Horseman
We know that it’s a hot show right now, but our Birdies always give an honest review. This HBO series just didn’t live up to the hype. White Lotus is a satirical show that follows employees and guests at a luxury Hawaiian resort. And while we love Jennifer Coolidge, Molly Shannon, and Connie Britton — this show fell flat.
Available on HBO
If you wanted to like White Lotus, give The Descendants a try
